not really an ask... about the "Benedict touching an object obscured by a glass" post, i think it's a mug, isn't it? can you see the handle in black, to the left of his finger, in front of the other guy's sweater?
I did have another soul inform me that it may be a mug, however my only qualm with the photo is that, unlike the other pictures, the touching is not explicit. Our vision is definitely obscured by the glass. A mug does seem likely, but we cannot be sure! Let’s take a closer look:
In my eyes this leaves it open to speculation. It could be a figurine black cat, and the handle we see may be its tail. Unlikely, I grant you, but wondrously imaginative.
So, what else could it be? Let’s see who is the most imaginative!
I love your blog of Benedict touching various things but my absolute favorite thing about it are your tags. So keep up the good work, you lovely creative human being (I assume you're human, that may be racist, but I'll take the risk)
Ah thank you. The tags are just the first things that come to mind when I post something. So glad you like the blog :)
Well, I am human, which I suppose is lucky. That would have been awkward if I was an alien or something. I’m sure you didn’t mean to be species-ist, so it’s all good!
I dont care if t's real or edited, I want a photo of Benny holding an otter! and another one holding a hedgehog!
Right. We must hatch a plan. Either:
Plan A. Somebody throws an otter into the air when Benedict is nearby. They must shout ‘Oh my God, look; a poor defenseless otter has been mercilessly thrown into the air. WHO WILL SAVE IT?’ With any luck, Benedict will heroically catch said otter and the person must then be on-hand to quickly take a photograph of him holding the otter (most probably with an epic derp face). They must then submit the photograph to this blog.
Plan B, all you followers who are a dab hand on photoshop, I implore you to make this happen. Photoshop Benny touching an otter/hedgehog for the utmost banter. Then submit. Or just sit and revel in your own genius.
What if he caressed your face? Wouldn't that be best?
I assure you, if Benedict touched any part of my being, I would collapse/melt into an unattractive puddle and gradually seep away. In theory, yes, it would be marvelous, though practically it’d just be a messy, blubbering puddle of ooze.
Therefore I believe him touching the blog may be safer.
I’ve opened a submissions link, which can be found here so you can submit some photographs of Benedict touching things yourself. This link will be opened for a limited time, just to test it out. I will post some of my favourite submissions.
what about benedict cumberbatch touching martin freeman? btw amazing blog
Yes, I have been wondering about this. We do of course have the very popular photo whereby all laws of the universe have seemingly imploded. I am, of course talking about this. I mean, Benedict being touched. It’s absurd and I didn’t believe it until I saw it.
However, Benedict does really need to touch Martin. Hmm. Will this do?
You brought to my attention the fact that Benedict likes to touch things and that it is funny for reasons unknown to science. For this, I thank you.
It’s something we will never understand, but we learn to embrace. His touching antics are a beautiful part of nature we all admire and laugh at. I’m so glad you like them and that your attention has indeed been brought to his touching ways.
It seems the frivolity of Benedict and his touching ways has attracted over a 1000 people. I don’t know how to process this information.
I didn’t expect even 10 followers when I started. I think I thought people might think me a little strange just posting photographs of him physically touching stuff. But alas, it seems many people like it.
So I will continue.
I’d like to say a big thank you to all the followers; your comments etc. make my day and I’m very grateful to every last one of you. Please sit back and enjoy the beauteous bounty of Benedict’s itchy fingers and the lucky paraphernalia that they are scratched with.
And a message from the man of the moment.
Thanks Benedict. You’re touching the hearts of many.
heh, is it just me or does benedict know just about every great famous person ever? also, he has pretty great taste when it comes to board shorts. anyway! i love your blog, and you too!
When I find a photo of him touching some TV deity I almost choke on what I’m eating (because, let’s face it, I’m always eating). Like when I found the photo of him and Stephen Fry, the noise that came from my mouth was halfway between a squeal and a loud shout.
His board shorts are one of the finer items in his wardrobe I think (though for Benedict’s attire everyone should consult http://whatareyouwearingbenedict.tumblr.com/) I was also rather partial to his fur coat in Frankenstein.
Thank you for the comment though my dear. :) So glad you like it! :)
Oh my life I saw this and laughed so hard well done on life :D
Oh wow thank you. I’ve never been congratulated on life, though I’m sure it’s something that should be done more often. Thank you for the lovely comment. As long as people keep choking up a lung laughing, then I’ll continue posting. :)
